Competition: La Liga
Market: Atletico Madrid win
Odds: 3/4 @ Bet 365
With their sights firmly set on reclaiming their La Liga title, Atletico Madrid will travel to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Sunday evening.
Starting with the hosts, while a bright pre-season run may have had the confidence in Leganes’ camp on a high ahead of their La Liga opener last weekend, Mauricio Pellegrino’s side suffered a shock 1-0 loss at home to a returning Ossanuna on home soil. Much like last season, it will undoubtedly be Los Pepineros’ form on home soil giving the former Southampton boss the biggest headache. Including their defeat last weekend, Leganes have not recorded a La Liga home victory since the 4th of April and have also failed to register a single goal in their last four consecutive matches at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
As for the visitors, starting the new La Liga campaign with an expected 1-0 victory at home to Getafe last weekend, Diego Simeone’s men are dreaming of going one step further than their silver medal finish last year. Including securing a stunning 7-3 victory over bitter-rivals Real out in the USA last month, fans around the Wanda Metropolitano have seen their side now enjoy a seven-match winning run and will look to make another statement on Sunday evening. Also picking up a 1-0 win when they last faced off against Leganes back in March, we’re backing a similar outcome this weekend.
